    Miracles in Music is a music class for people of all ages with developmental disabilities. Instructor Lois Lane, who has a degree in developmental disabilities and has taught similar classes for many years, is bringing her amazing musical talent to ReachArts for another series of classes!

    Throughout the class, students will develop a better understanding of singing, music, performance, self-confidence, social skills, and an overall sense of well-being. And, of course, there will be lots of fun along the way!

    All materials and instruments will be provided. At the end of classes, students will give a concert that’s open to the community.

    Beginning July 22nd, classes will run from 6:30-7:30pm each Monday for 8 weeks. The 9th class will be a concert where the students can share all they have learned (March 18th or 25th - TBD). Classes will be divided by age - 5-11, 12-18 and 19+.

    Fees are $9/class. Payment is accepted at the first class. For other payment arrangements or additional information, please contact Lois Lane directly at miraclesinmusic7@gmail.com.

    Painting Intensive involves both theory and practice. Students will gain technical knowledge in color and brushstroke through weekly exercises. We will delve into the creative process. Those interested in developing portfolios or work on a body of art will have both time and space to do so. For beginners needing technical help, you will learn step-by-step techniques in the fundamentals of painting.

    Professor Tereza Swanda is an Art Appreciation and Studio Arts Instructor at Dean College and has been teaching drawing and painting for 20 years.

    Featuring work by Tereza Swanda, Peter Howells, Diane Jacobs, Angela Rose Voulgarelis, Dorota Mytych, Michael Miller, Melissa Morris

    ReachArts hosts Unredacted, a mixed media exhibition featuring 7 artists who, over the last two decades, have studied with the collaborative duo rosenclaire, Rose Shakinovsky and Claire Gavronsky, artists and educators who run workshops and residencies principally in Italy and South Africa.

    "As a group, we are working with the following themes: gender and economic inequality, violence against women and children, migration as a means of potential political asylum, destructive thoughts that perpetuate social and political division, as well as the collapse of hierarchical cultural structures. 

    Acknowledging the political post-truth world we now live in, as artists and activists, we aim to shine a light on sustained inequities and offer more humane alternatives."

    Saturdays: 11 am- 1 pm Tereza Swanda paints Shells, portraits while sitting with the public. The difference from a portraiture artist is that Swanda doesn't paint the sitter’s portrait, instead each individual chooses an image of a migrant.

    Have you ever wanted to try your hand at drama without actually having to be in a play? This class is for you! You might be hoping to improve your speaking skills or meet new people or just have a great time. This promises to be a lively experience in a supportive environment - participating in fun theatre games, talking about elements of theatre, and winding it all up with a staged reading of a one-act play (to be determined by the class).

    Sponsored by Marblehead Little Theater in collaboration with ReachArts.
    Open to adults 18+.
